    In deference to the events of this past week, I have decided to open the bar and not title it.

    You are all welcome to stop in and post a message.

    LH and Karen.

    Sending you and yours much love.

    Same here. I will drink mine with iced tea, because it's a warm afternoon in Chicago, 80 degrees. *toast*
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!

    A cup cup of chai, please. And I'll put on a pot of coffee, just because I know y brothers could use some, and every family gathering always had coffee involved.

    Barkeep, I'll take 2 fingers of whiskey in a glass over ice, please.

    Don't mind me sitting under the lightening rod, just waiting for the jolt from someone complaining we made too damned much fuss over him.

    Somehow, I think that your Pops is looking down and smiling and chuckling about the 'ado'?

    Two fingers and more hot water.

    It's started to sprinkle and the weather is pretty cool.

    Perfect hot drink weather.

    To friends, family and everyone we love........

    Salud.

    More likely grumbling about the fuss being made ... we told him 3 years ago, "We are giving you an 80th birthday party - so just hold still and put up with it! You only have to put up it for zero-year birthday, okay?" We figure this falls under the same category.

    The dogs of his neighborhood will certainly miss him, and his pocket with cookies!

    The dogs of his neighborhood?

    What about the dogs of the rest stops and various and sundry other places? After all, if you don't use the doggy cookies, they go bad!

    My dad was a man of few words and fewer expressions. Unless you knew him well or stayed around for an hour or two for him give an opinion, you really had to be patient to find out what he thought about anything.

    A few years after he passed, my mom and I were talking about his birthday and his apparent indifference about the whole deal. I asked my mom if she knew how he felt about his B-days and she said, "Oh he loved his birthdays, He loved the fact that people gave him presents!"

    ------------------


    After he passed, Ma finally got up the gumption to start going thru his things and we got into a closet where he kept his 'guy stuff'. I found three of my pocket knifes that I had set down while working on thing and he swooped in to pick them up. The other thing that was horrifying and hilarious was a Hickory Farms gift package that was YEARS old. I guess he put it up on a shelf and forgot about it....It was mummified beyond belief and we tried to remember what year it was given to him and the closest date we got was sometime during the late 20th century?!

    Our Dad was a great storyteller, and we all have many stories we will pass along to future generations.

    Now that it is the season, cider, please!
